You know, it’s easy to joke around about this topic…but I’d like to have all the time I have spent repeatedly looking for some “item” that is chronically gone, but I know I own. Got so tired of wasting so much time on those stupid same things that are perpetually gone I made a special “disappearing item shelf” and make sure I place the constantly gone thing, whatever it is, back there when I am done. What’s amazing is that some of this stuff is not all that small….packing tape dispenser, good Fiskar scissors, hot melt glue gun {gee!!! you too??}, scratch awl, small chainsaw file, Arrow T-50 stapler and staples, cigar cutter and lighter, favorite adjustable wrench, funnel {of any kind}, 550 para-chord…..some of these things got so bad I actually painted them blaze orange to help find them…also, another thing that works good is to stick a few small pieces of reflective tape on something. When it is lost in the shop I turn out the lights and shine a flash light!!!! Actually works pretty good. Sad thing is, my current shop is not that large or in a state of disarray!!!
